Garmin 205 run activity recorded as bike

Hi i just completed a 10km and was surprised to find that i could not find the details on the run part of the workouts. I later discovered that i had somehow managed to get everything set up on bike?
Is there any way i can correct this and have it on my runners part of my deatils rather than bike?
many thanks

What isthe microphone on my garmin nuvi 205 for if it doesn't have voice activation or bluetooth?

Hi, The manual for your Garmin covers quite a few models with differing features. As the 205 is the entry level unit for the range, it is very likely that the microphone is not even installed. The microphone is only used for the handsfree feature.

My Garmin says no detailed maps found that support routing? It will not go away and the reset I tried didn't work. ???

Did you try a Hard Reset, or just push the button on the bottom of your Garmin Nuvi 205?

Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

I hope that helps.
